Mass Flowmeters – MFC 400 Modular Converter

The high performance signal converter for all applications

MFC 400 with EGM
MFC 400
  • High performance signal converter for all applications, developed acc. to IEC 61508, SIL 2/3
  • Stable in multi-phase applications due to Entrained Gas Management (EGM™)
  • Smart diagnostics acc. to NAMUR NE 107

The MFC 400 Coriolis mass flow signal converter will provide the highest performance possible across a wide range of applications. For the measurement of liquids or gases, cryogenic to high temperature fluids, single or multi-phase fluids and advanced digital signal processing techniques is used to give stable and accurate measurements of mass flow, density and temperature.

It is developed according to IEC 61508 and depending on the I/O and flow sensor variant suited for use in safety applications SIL 2/3.

 Conforming to the NAMUR standard NE 107 for status and error handling, the MFC 400 features enhanced meter diagnostics. This provides extensive self-checking of internal circuits and information regarding the health of the flow sensor, but just as importantly, vital information about the process and process conditions.

Measuring values and diagnostic information can be transmitted via field bus interfaces including HART®, RS485 Modbus, FOUNDATION™ Fieldbus, PROFIBUS® and PROFINET IO. 

MFC 400: EGM™ Entrained Gas Management allows continuous measurement with 0 to 100 % gas entrainment.
